Former NCAA softball star for the University of Arizona and Olympic gold medalist Jennie Finch has been announced to be a keynote speaker for the Semoball Awards at the Southeast Missouri State River Campus on July 11. During her talk, Finch is going to be getting into what it took for her to make it as far as she did in the college softball world and her experiences at the Olympic Games. She hopes to be able to inspire people to go for their dreams no matter what it takes, and leave them in a better place than they were before the speech.
The Women’s College World Series champion is originally from La Mirada, California, but began her career in 1999 playing softball for the University of Arizona. During her freshman year she managed to pitch her first no-hitter during the NCAA tournament that year, and by the following year she was named a 2000 NFCA First Team All-American and First Team All-Pac 10 player. Finch also played for Team USA in the 2004 Athens Olympics where they brought hold the gold, and in the 2008 Beijing Olympics in which they won the silver. Since her retirement from the sport in 2010, she has written books and travels around with the purpose of inspiring young women to take control of their futures.
She will be speaking at this year’s Semoball Awards this summer at Southeast Missouri State River Campus, and it will be a very enlightening and exciting speech for all to hear.
